My Wordless Wednesday post is below.
Today is the day of the Great Virtual Breast Fest sponsored by The League of Maternal Justice. A virtual nurse-in is being held at 10 a.m. (your local time) today.
It’s so frustrating to me that here we are in the year 2007 and we are having to fight for something as basic as a baby’s right to eat because of people like Bill Maher who equates breastfeeding to masturbation and Facebook who bans breastfeeding photos because they are “obscene,” and restaurants like Applebee’s who insist that breastfeeding women cover up as if they are doing something shameful.
It is my sincerest hope that by the time my children are grown, Ava will not have to deal with opposition for breastfeeding her children in public. That is why I participate in these things. In hopes of bringing about a change for future generations.
Here’s a video of us participating in the breast fest:
And here’s a link to others who participated in the nurse-in. :)
